Kathy Ornish’s 5 Favorite Tools for Anxiety

February 10, 2014    BY Kathy Ornish

These 5 powerful tools can calm you in the moment and can also create long-term change and transformation in your life. Kathy’s first tool for anxiety is asymmetric asana, which keeps the mind focused and links movement with the breath. Pranayama is next—it shifts your physiology and collects the mind. The use of sankalpa, an affirmation or a resolution, is another favorite. Finally, Kathy explains viyoga and samyoga—separating yourself from what doesn’t serve you and connecting yourself to something positive that does serve you and helps you realize your true nature.
